UPM Specialty Papers presents compostable food stickers for fruit and vegetables

UPM Specialty Papers has launched compostable food stickers, usable for fruit and vegetables. Juhani Ylikoski, sales director at UPM Specialty Papers, said: “We are happy to provide a compostable solution, which helps our customers to meet this regulatory change as well as their sustainability targets. In addition to fruit stickers, UPM LabelCoat and UPM LabelCoat Prime can be used for a variety of other pressure-sensitive labeling applications.”

UPM LabelCoat and UPM LabelCoat Prime label face papers have been certified as both industrially and home-compostable. The move is designed to meet new EU packaging regulations. The EU’s Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation proposal targets a 2030 deadline to ensure all packaging in the region is reusable or recyclable. There is also a requirement for sticky fruit and veg labels to be compostable in industrially controlled conditions.
